When running a logistics company, most of us are focused on acquiring the cheapest rates, growing our business fast and connecting with numerous partners across the globe. However, NSRN's member CSL Poland has a different outlook. We spoke to Przemysław Hołowacz, the Chief Development Officer of CSL Poland about creating a thriving business based on inclusivity and supporting the local community.
A member of New Silk Road Network (NSRN), Linktis Poland has established a new air, sea and rail department this year. Keeping in mind the customer’s inclusive needs, this department was created to offer logistics solutions by delivering professional, reliable, and inclusive freight services.
In the month of July, New Silk Road Network’s (NSRN) founding member Agemar Global Logistics received two standardisation certificates. The first certificate, ISO 9001-2015, which specifies requirements for Quality Management Systems (QMS), that aim towards consistency of delivering products and services while achieving all regulatory requirements. The second certificate that Agemar received was ISO 27001-2013, that states requirements for Information Security Management System (ISMS), which entails establishing and operating ISMS within the company.
In the month of July, NSRN’s founding member Langowski Logistics welcomed a peculiar cargo in their warehouse in Warsaw. As part of their military cargo service, Langowski Logistics brought in a tank. This M26 ‘Pershing’, is a US model from World War II. Although a medium tank, it was renamed as a heavy tank to boost the morale of the soldiers fighting in the war. Though smaller than a usual heavy tank, it is much bulkier than a regular medium tank. After the Second World War, it also debuted in the Korean War in the 1950s.
Logistics companies must regularly keep up with the world of politics. Geopolitical influence on trade and commerce cannot be ignored, as they have the potential to influence one’s daily business. A situation arose in 2014, that had significant repercussions for rail and road transport organized around some of the routes of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). A geopolitical crisis involving Russia chopped down the ability to move certain products across the country, which formed a large chunk of some significant rail routes towards China.
GCD Glomb Dienst GmbH, a member of New Silk Road Network (NSRN) shares a unique experience of one of their recent transports from Poland to Portugal. GCD Glomb believes that transporting cargo by trains has the apparent benefit of covering more extended parts of the journey via rail and the shorter distance by road. This benefit also protects the environment while at the same time saves costs and optimises transit time.
